Canton-based Nonprofit in Need of Monthly Donations to Feed Local Families Across Cherokee County, Atlanta, and Surrounding Areas
SERV International Launches Monthly Sponsorship Program to Help Provide Food Boxes to 800 Local Families in Need Every Month
CANTON, GA – SERV International [SERV] announced the official launch of SERV Food Local’s monthly sponsorship program aimed at providing food boxes to 800 families across Cherokee County, Atlanta, and surrounding areas.
SERV Food Local, a locally focused program of SERV International, aspires to work together with a community of volunteers and monthly donors to change the lives of local families in need. The program starts by providing families with one of the most essential items one can give: Food.
With the help of community volunteers, SERV currently packs-out over 800 food boxes each month at their warehouse located in Canton, GA. Each packed food box represents a family being reached. In order to continue reaching over 800 families every month, SERV is asking for community funding and support to continue monthly pack-outs and ensure every family that needs a food box receives one.
“Providing a food box to a family is not just about the food. Each box is prayed over and includes a personal and inspirational handwritten message,” said Steve Kasha, Founder and CEO of SERV International. “We see this as more than just providing a box. We see it as an opportunity to create relationships, share Christ, and build stronger communities wherever we are called to serve… We want to meet people where they are, and we can only do that with the help and support of our community.”
Individuals and organizations that would like to be a part of SERV Food Local’s sponsorship program can sponsor a local family in need for just $35 a month. Each $35 family sponsorship covers the entire cost associated with supplying an amazing food box designed to feed a family of four for a week. SERV Food Local’s program goal is to successfully fill all 800 sponsorship opportunities, with plans to increase the number of food boxes packed-out if funding exceeds the initial ask.
As an organization, SERV International reaches far and wide to distribute life-saving food to children and adults, the elderly, and refugees living in complex regions; areas of operations include Ukraine, Jordan, and Kenya. Since 2019, SERV began partnering on a local level with individuals and organizations to identify and serve food to families with the greatest needs, those in need of temporary relief, or those just looking for a helping hand. With the help of local communities across the Atlanta area, SERV aims to ensure families don’t have to choose between putting food on the table, gas in the tank, or paying vital bills.
